Kerry Continues Drumbeat for DREAM Act

Press Release

Senator John Kerry today reaffirmed his commitment to providing a pathway to citizenship for immigrant children who wish to attend college or enlist in the military, joining 32 of his Senate colleagues to reintroduce the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which aims to provide a path to citizenship for immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as young children and would like to pursue higher education or military service.

"The DREAM Act is a commonsense reform that shouldn't be controversial," said Sen. Kerry. "These are hard-working, talented young people who want to contribute to the country they love that's been their home almost all their lives. These kids didn't intentionally break the law, they're innocent victims of a broken immigration system. I've supported the DREAM Act for a decade because it's the right thing to do, and I'll continue to push until it becomes law."

Kerry has been a co-sponsor of the proposal since it was first introduced in 2001. On December 18, 2010, Senate Republicans used a filibuster to block passage of legislation.
